Climber or rampant is a group of modern rose garden cultivars. All kinds of roses, both "Ancient" and "Modern", have "climbing" forms, so that shrubs grow much longer and more flexible than "shrub" forms. In the old garden roses, this is often simply the habit of natural growth. See difference with the group of cultivars "shrub (pink)".

In many modern roses, however, climbing roses are the result of spontaneous mutations. For example, Climbing Peace climber as a "tea hybrid climber," because it is genetically identical to the normal form "hybrid tea shrub" 'Peace', except that its reeds are long and flexible, ie 'climbing'. Most climbing roses grow anywhere with dimensions 8'-20 'high and present remoneness.

Rampant roses, though technically a separate class, are often grouped together with climbing roses. They also exhibit long, flexible sticks, but are usually distinguished from true climbers in two ways: A larger overall size (20'-30 'in height is common), so it is their habit that blooms once but very abun- tantly.

One of the most vigorous climbing roses is the pink filipes 'Kiftsgate', named for the garden of the house where it was observed by Graham Stuart Thomas in 1951. The original plant is claimed to be the largest rose bush in the world. UK, and has climbed 50 meters into a copper beech tree.


There are varieties of climbing roses in three types:

  • Reminiscent and with large flowers. Their roses are identical to those of bush roses.
  • Remotants and with small flowers, in bouquets. Very abundant flowering.
  • Not remontantes. These give a single bloom a year in spring, but it is very abundant, reaching to cover all the small flower climbers in bouquets.

They are also grown in pots or deep planters to decorate terraces. Roses will grow very well almost anywhere outside the tropics.

In hot, dry climates they thrive and flourish so much that they tend to have a shorter life, especially if they are not allowed a break in summer. If they are deprived of water they will enter into a state of rest and lose the leaves in summer, but they will bloom again in autumn.

is allowed to grow until it reaches the height of the pergola, and there it appears to form several shoots that will constitute the main branches.

Annual pruning should be light and consist of trimming 3 or 5 buds what has grown in the year, and suppressing by base all outbreaks that are weak or poorly formed. If they have aged the main branches (they give already few flowers) they are renewed replacing them progressively by young stems.
